Beloved California-based coffee company Blue Bottle is planning a new cafe at 54 West 40th St., right across the street from Bryant Park. The new, 445 square-foot outpost of Blue Bottle will have a drip bar, a three-grouphead La Marzocco Strada espresso machine, and a mini keg filled with iced coffee. A Blue Bottle rep says that the team is shooting for a spring opening.
Later this month, Blue Bottle will open its second Brooklyn location on Dean Street in Boerum Hill. The company recently raised $25.75 million in funding, which it plans to use for expansion in California and New York.
